Get well soon Uteh
I feel so uneasy now, and I hardly can do my work well today. I keep thinking of Uteh, which is held at the veterinary clinic.
On Friday, I noticed that Uteh body temperature is quite high. So I gave him the antibody fluid that I got from Oyen’s visit to vet before. Saturday, Uteh started to vomit and having diarrhoea. Yesterday, Uteh shows no sign of improvement, and completely stop eating.
So this morning, I went to vet clinic again. From the symptom that I describe to the doctor, she suspected that Uteh has viral infection. A quick blood test shows that Uteh’s white blood cell is very low.
When it’s viral infection, there’s no medicine for it. It’s up to the antibody to defeat the virus. In severe cases, it can cause fatal in 5 days time. Only god knows how I feel when I heard that from the doc. Uteh is so weak as he’s not taken any fluid in, and the doc has to give him intravenous theraphy, i.e. the giving of liquid substance directly into a vein (what we call “masuk air”)
This is the photo of Uteh taken just before I fetch him to vet his morning, with my trembling hand.
Uteh. Promise me that you will get well soon okay! I just pray to Allah hoping that the doc will give me good news tomorrow of that Uteh is getting better.
